Crockpot Italian Hamburger Potato Soup

This cozy, comforting (yet fresh and light) soup is a perfect simple meal for a cold night. If your family loves meat and potatoes, but you are looking for something different, yet easy, this is a great meal!

It’s a spin on the traditional Italian Wedding Soup, but instead of pasta, you add potatoes, and instead of meatballs, you just use ground beef (or sausage if you wish). I served this up with some grated sharp white cheddar on top and a homemade loaf of bread.

In the Winter I love cooking with my crockpot, and this meal is EASY and quick! With only a few minutes of prep, you can dump everything in your crockpot and have a nice, warm meal. My husband said after, “If that was easy for you to make, please make it again soon.”

When I was putting this together, I didn’t have any vegetable broth or tomatoes on hand, and I didn’t feel like making meatballs for wedding soup, so I thought I would try something different. I thought chicken broth with ground beef may be strange, but I knew I loved wedding soup, so I tried it, and it was super good. It’s even better the next day.


  1. This meal can be gluten free or dairy free (just make sure your broth is gluten/dairy free) and serve with some gluten free bread. For dairy free, don’t add cheese to the top.
  2. Additions: You could add white beans to make this soup heartier. You could also sub sausage for beef.
  3. This soup is great served alongside homemade bread or rolls with butter. It would also be great with grilled cheese or crackers.
